Having scars on face is a common thing. These are mostly stubborn and hard to remove. Take few important steps before these get permanent and tarnish your beauty.
The best way is to prevent blemishes from occurring. The moment you get a cut, acne, burn on the skin, try to cure it right away or it will leave ugly mark, which can be really difficult to get rid of.
Use scar remover of major brands. After applying over blemishes, let it stay for the whole day to work effectively. Various topical gels are available in the market. Use one that works for you. Follow manufacturer’s instructions mentioned on the label to make sure it proves beneficial.
Retin-A: Discoloration and scars on the face can be removed with this topical treatment.
Restylane: Fillers are injected into the skin to fill holes and uneven areas of the face. An example of filler is Restylane.
Exposure to sun rays can be really harmful. It makes scars darker and more visible. Tanning is another problem. UV rays damage the skin cells and cause serious dermatological disorder as well. It can make scars harder to heal and disappear. Try to stay indoors especially during 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in sunny days. Sunlight is more intense during these hours, so it can trigger scars to get darker or stubborn. Before going out, wear sunscreen, preferably SPF 30 or higher.
Go for microdermabrasion or laser resurfacing. It is effective for more deep scars. Doctor will decide how many sessions you need.
Because skin is sensitive and delicate, consult an expert before using any scar-removing product or going for medical treatment. In case of infections on the skin, treat that first and then begin with appropriate scar removing procedures.
